The Utu hat is a quick and easy basic hat for everyday use. With its classic twin cables and garter sections it makes a wardrobe stable that you keep reaching for over and over again. The hat is knitted with the softest merino boucle yarn, Woolfolk Flette, giving it a distinctive hazy look. (Utu means haze in Finnish.)

The hat is knitted from the bottom up in a round. The brim will be folded double for extra warmth. The hat comes in two sizes, a fitted version and a more relaxed, longer version. This pattern is suitable for knitters who are just learning to knit cables.
